Sunday, May 5th 2019, 11:29 am - Conditions will improve Sunday, but more snow is expected to return by the evening for parts of Alberta
Parts of the Prairies will get a break from the snow Sunday afternoon, but another round of the white stuff is expected tonight for the Foothills and higher elevations in western areas of Alberta.
While there are no warnings in place, an additional 5-10 cm of snow is possible by Monday morning. Temperatures will remain below seasonal and only reach single digits.
However, there is an end in sight to the cold temperatures and snow. Warmer air will hit the Prairies by mid-week.

TEMPERATURES REMAIN BELOW SEASONAL SUNDAY
A cold air remains over the Prairies as the weekend comes to a close, with temperatures expected to remain in the single digits across all provinces.
MORE SNOW AHEAD SUNDAY NIGHT
While the first round of snow tapers off in Calgary this morning, another shot is expected in the evening and overnight hours for the Foothills and higher elevations across western portions of Alberta.
A possible 5-10 cm could accumulate by the time it ends by Monday morning.
The break in precipitation will be short-lived, however, as another low takes aim at central Alberta with showers and maybe snow or mixing for the Edmonton area, as well as across central Saskatchewan.

WATCH BELOW: WHEN WARMTH WILL RETURN AND HOW MUCH
Spring warmth is just around the corner for the Prairies, as a pattern shift will end the consistent cold air that has been plaguing the provinces recently. Temperatures are set to hit the mid-teens for much of Alberta by Thursday. Grand Prairie could even hit 20°C.
A ridge of high pressure over British Columbia will be responsible for removing the below-seasonal temperatures and will allow for sunshine to return and a warmup by mid-week.
